Discovered a very interesting thing - Dos box game launcher. Really neat thing. Easy launcher for dosbox, you can make a separate profile for each game and for each game it has his own dosbox parameters, also listed in very easy menu instead of just edit ssetings.cfg
You can also have multiple dosbox installations and hell lot of ther options, like transfer game info and cover art directly dom mobygames by one click. A very interesting alternative to buying games on gog honestely.

So next TOS movies... I remember I liked them back when was younger. Cinemotagraphic stories, cool events, kirk, spock, mccoy, all guys you like doing coll adventures across the galaxy, and 2-3-4 movies even continue each other, what and adventure! However nowdays from this persperctive there a more of dissapointment in therms of be star trek. A lot of things there was made itentionally more holywood-y and more ground level than high style of star trek. This movies become more like "a star wars based on old 60s tv series" than star trek.

You see, in first movie, it was like evolution of star trek - evolution in what it was meant to be. Space Oddysey-style adventure with a lot of patience, moral story, emotions and same time actual aiming on future, technology and unknown things in space perfectly match what star trek should me. There people explorers of stragne things. They more high mentaly and moraly than we, modern humands and you can clear see it. And in all things - decorations, special effects, uniforms you see that this share and evolves ideas of TOS to more mature and advanced level. Something that Roddenberry failed to do in original mosty due to lack of practical experience and budget.

2-6 movies are different. They in many ways like just OH SPACE ADVENTURE IN FUTURE, HERE WE HAVE LASORS, HERE RANDOM LOCATIONS, AND SOMETHING HAPPENING, HERE SOME FAMILIAR CHARACTERS FROM PAST. From big picture - like most of them just repeat most poular blockbuster plots and scheme of creaction to little details.
On big picture you see - battle against cool han boom boom, battle against klingons, adventure of cool team of guys against rules, cool time travel, 6 movie even sometimes feels more like JJ Abrams movie than star trek since it just jump across locations, "hard" plot, action, and all this tihngs.

At in the end - yeas, TNG at first in many ways just re-branded Phase-II. It use hell lot of characters, concepts, even some plots of episodes directly from Phase II. But same way as movie, this also not a complete phase II - it is in early stages much more cheap, and inserted different ideas, or altered them. Like conflict that Decker's father was a guy commander from TOS doomsday machine episode (I think you remember who I metion) and there a conflict with Kirk about this, was replaced that Picard and father of weasley crusher, for example.

And more series go - more it was clear that TNG become it's own thing. They abadoned hell lot of ideas and concepts from early TNG that was donated from Phase-II - overall high moral tone - they lowervered level of moral a little bit, they not used a separation of main section and sauser almost, uniforms was re-designer from mix of TOS and TMP to somthing more regular in therms of materials and thicness, plots changed overall, even idea of that klingon empire was defeated and assimilated which was metioned once in one of the most early episodes was qulicky abadoned and retconed.

This why I like early TNG more nowdays - I see it like lost bits of Phase II. I know that my ideal Phase II has no chances to become a real thing - but I still deam of what if, star trek had a TV series in 70s in style and with budget of TMP, without re-appearing and more and more old TOS actos (well kirk may appear sometimes as admiral. Or he can be captian and skotty engeneer, but cleary spock and some others there not entierly fit), but something really new and in style of psce oddysey, with most high 70s science fiction narrative and feel.

>compare to them this guys from 6th movie is not federation, this is pre-hisoric apes from XX centuary.
Moments like this always destroy Hollywood movies. No matter what time period or culture, characters are written as if they are 20th century Americans. The video of Picard is exactly right. You can't have a show with advanced technologies without also presenting characters who demonstrate how that technology has impacted culture and behavior. That is the hardest thing to get right in science fiction.
>even idea of that klingon empire was defeated and assimilated which was metioned once in one of the most early episodes was qulicky abadoned and retconed.
They got some of their best stories by exploring Klingon culture. I think the most honest depiction of both the Federation and the Klingon Empire would be where they were in an unstable peace. That's kind of what they did in TNG. The truce was a big part of the lore, but it was more believable because the two sides came into conflict from time to time.

I don't say TNG is bad, I say that it become a little bit more grounded compare to original idea of making really NEXT generation, compare to which even Motion picture federation and technologies be pre-hestoric.

That's not the same at all. Nobody breaks the legs of the livestock and then knocks them out. In fact the farms get audited for animal welfare just as hard as the plant does, by the same people and if they fail, not only are they given massive fines, but they love their livelihood because nobody is going to buy from a farm that fails an audit, and the conditions are pretty stringent including and not limited to having adequate shelter and limiting the livestock to pasture ratio.

Then once they reach the plant, they're kept in similar conditions in the yards. The holding paddocks are actually very well maintained, the ones I've been around even had hedgerows for the sheep to get out of the wind in (an optional feature too). Then they go to processing yards where they follow the judas sheep inside under no coercion where they're stunned and killed as quickly as humanly possible and that is instantaneously if halal doesn't need to be observed. If it is observed then a reputable plant uses bigger stunners that keep the animal under while they die. Using your mob analogy, it'd be someone putting you on a long morphine drip so you're out cold while the nastiness happens and stay out cold, with the difference being that you don't wake up to deal with the broken legs. Also, don't try and act like you weren't laying judgment on the people involved with your 'they know it's wrong' theory. It's also internationally recognised that livestock are sentient (not sapient, people get them mixed up a lot) and thus measures must be taken with the assumption that the animal is self-aware and has a limited ability to comprehend its environment. Seeing something as not having the same rights as sapient (human-like) life doesn't mean that you think it has no rights. We're not the callous barbarians you make us out to be.

Can Ernsts help me to remember a music video by description? I saw it in early 00's, if I'm not mistaken, it was a hip-hop or a trip-hop song, I think. There was a white dude walking in some slums in the evening/night reading the first verse. Then he tore the skin on his face to reveal a black dude underneath. The black dude read the second verse (or chorus?), then he tore the skin on his face too, revealing the white dude again, who proceeded to read the next verse and so on.

I don't even know why am I looking for that video. I didn't even like the song much. Still, would be nice to remember it. Pic unrealted.

The day finally came this week. I just found out today that my junkie "cousin" fatally OD'ed two days ago. I put "cousin" in quotes because my mother was adopted. My mother knew exactly where she stood as her adoptive parents were quick to tell her, "Blood is thicker than water." After hearing the refrain throughout much of your life, you grow bitter and disgusted, but frankly, we're both thankful to God we share not one drop of blood with these people

My cousin was a malignant tumor given a human shape. Because of this woman's terrible childhood, grandpa pitied her endlessly. Even as recently as a year ago, he kept saying, "She's just a big kid," because she would always be the 5-year-old girl he'd stare at on his refrigerator door. I don't know what inspired her to take drugs, but I can tell you that she indeed suffered the worst possible circumstances growing up. Her father committed suicide before she was six months old. Her mother is a consummate grifter who shacks up with the lowest of low lives.

My cousin's teenage obsession with Kurt Cobain partly explains her inclination towards hard drugs, but she grew up with an endless stream of pain. She either decided early on that her prospects in life would be minimal (her mother did frequently berate her) or perhaps she simply had no interest in being productive, and what better way to explore new sensations than continually ingest newer and newer highs. Getting high simultaneously helped alleviate the pain of her childhood trauma and kept her close in spirit to the celebrities she idolized. Her grandpa would unconditionally support her, so the incentive to grow up simply didn't exist. In the end, grandpa viewed his granddaughter as a child who desperately needed to be nurtured.

>Or she knowingly probably tried to play the "I'm a victim" card from having a shitty life. But at the end of the day, it's actively choosing to be as shitty a person as possible.

This pretty much nails it. We live in a culture that incentivizes victimhood, and she had a sufficiently wide network of people that would never once question her most egregious behaviors, let alone do anything to correct her. All that mattered to her was he insatiable need to live a life free of pain and strife. Everyone was either just a means to her ends or simply there to validate her existence. Grandpa happily did both.

Even if you excuse her addictions and the actual grief she caused others (several people claim she stole from them), she never cultivated a meaningful relationships with others that went beyond partying or sharing an experience. All she could muster is buying friends with grandpa's money.

What's particularly fascinating is going through my cousin's party pictures with her usual bevy of bitches. Almost all of them were having the time of their lives while she just stood there on the periphery concealing her despair with false joy. Deep down inside, she knew these people were nothing more than fair-weather friends who'd drop her the instant she became a liability.

What a fucking mess of family, but such things were actually pretty common in the past. /pol/ keeps talking about how raising someone else's kid is being a "cuck", but the truth is that many families did this back then but that the adoptees were meant to be lower members of the family, kept outside of the core of the family, and used more for work, helping mother or father in their respective works. Your grandpa was probably a transition generation, on one hand he made it clear that your mother wasn't his blood (because that's probably how he learned it from older generations), but on the other he probably didn't use her for work.
